  9. DEVELOPER COMMENT

    We are actually not still while sitting. So it is important for us to maintain our balance constantly.That balance is crucial for us to have efficiency in what we do while sitting.
    P.A.S. focus on this bodily function.
    “p!nto” is the cushion which suppress wobbling and tells us the proper position of our axes, to let us have the best alignment. It is my pleasure to introduce “ETHREEM” which we discovered while working with people with disabilities.
    I hope it brings lots of smiles, joy and comfort for people with all abilities.

    We believe seat cushions are meant to offer comfort and relief.
    Our therapists feel individual bodies with our hands to find the equilibrium, the most comfortable alignment which flow with gravity, and the best positions for the individual cushion production. The detailed process is based on Kinematics, Anatomy, Occupational therapy, Ecological psychology and Feldenkrais Method.
    We then, collect data above to the cutting edge scanner technology.
    This is how p!nto came about.

    The good posture habit comes from the proper alignment of the bones and muscles.

    You feel as though you are “wearing” them when you sit on our “p!nto” products. This is because the supporters inside the cushions place your ribs, pelvis and thighs on the most comfortable position to sit. (ETHREEM) We are actually moving while sitting. So it is important for us to have something to suppress wobbling of our cores. That makes us to have efficiency in what we do while sitting. "p!nto" products are nothing like braces for your teeth. They are more of a platform for good posture habit. A good posture enable us to have efficient movements. You can reach out to each direction. “p!nto” is the place which you can go back to the starting seating position to have realigned posture for your next move.
